my 2 cents worth

In reply to Insulating 1930' attic with knob & tube wiring in it. by Mike W. on September 8th, 2000 10:55 PM [Go to top of thread]

I've always heard not to cover knob and tube and if you are going to replace it with sheathed electrical cable with ground(which can be covered), then replace a whole circuit at a time from the breaker to the end without splicing sheathed electrical cable into part of a circuit.

K&T has splices wrapped in tape and not in junction boxes where all splices belong and also isn't grounded.
